I feel like I'd have to carry the book at all times if I had those nails Kitteh! How did you get the blue fading to white effect on the 'Smart Girls Get . . .' nails?

I'm wearing Orly Sparkling Garbage, which I'm LOVING! It's so, so, so sparkly, especially in sunlight. Bonus: I had a Sally's coupon and got it for about $2.50! It took about 4 coats to get it opaque, and the color isn't as dingy as it looks in this pic, but I couldn't find a better one.

Thanks, Jessi, MMC, Nicole, Snarky, and Jojo! :D Originally the skull looked more like a jellyfish so I had to re-do him :)

I put all the details on the blog as they're getting a bit long and I don't want to take up too much of the thread ;) For that one I used a make up sponge :) Google gradient nails as some people have tutes where you paint on the sponge rather than dabbing the paint onto your nails.

Zee - that looks so sparkly!

Kitteh, your nails are amazing.


So I decided to play around with my nails this week. It's Zoya dove with hot pink (wet and wild candy-licious) tips, complete with cracked cuticles.

I don't believe it, I only did my toes Sunday and they didn't even survive one salsa class!! Normally I do 2 or 3 classes before they chip. Anyway here they are, chip and all. The blue is Bleu Fabuleux from Bourjois and the white is Orly White Out.

Thanks Kitteh, ill have a read of your blog.

I'm pretty impressed with my first go of Dior polish and top coat (with Orly bonder), it's lasted a week of nails being banged around a bit more than usual and still looks pretty good. It has worn a tiny bit on some tips (as if I'd filed the front edge off) but hasn't chipped. Even where I broke off a nail tip the polish there didn't chip. I'll try that base and top coat combo with a different polish and see how I get on but I'm thinking it might be worth forking out on a second Dior polish.

Nail polish shopping is a pretty new world to me, I'm in NYC at the moment but I'm sure we don't have this much choice (and so much that is limited edition) in the UK - or do we? I guess I haven't looked for a long time.

Yeah, the Dior polish is awesome quality wise. It's the best I've ever tried. I can get 10 days without a chip. It always applies nicely. My only gripe is the big brush. The new gel top coat is great too.

If I took my sentimental connection to Chanel out of the equation, I'd be busy buying Dior instead. If I can afford it at the end of the month, I might buy the summer green duo if it isn't sold out. It's two mini bottles with regular brushes for the price of one bottle.

Diaboltine is drop dead gorgeous if you can still find that one. It sold out quickly I think. It's kind of a glass fleck neon duochrome. Amazing in the sun, which is how I ended up accidentally buying it.

Question- what color toenail polish do you think would be good with pink open-toed shoes? I got these for a wedding:

http://www.amazon.com/Mel-Apple-Wedge-S ... +apple+III

The rest of my outfit will be pretty neutral. I'm partial to darker red toenail polish usually, but not sure if I like a red/pink combo here. I also feel like my toenails are not the greatest, so they look better with darker polish as opposed to sheer/translucent type shades.

Deep pink? Turquoise? Navy?

Navy might be interesting- not sure about turquoise or deep pink, I feel like I need to tone down my colors overall. Even though I said I wanted to stay away from sheer colors, I'm wondering now if I could give myself a good french pedicure. Not sure of this kit is vegan but I could try to email them and find out, all the other vegan french manicure kits I've seen seem to be discontinued at the moment:

http://www.barielle.com/Kits-Natural_Fr ... e_Kit.html

I haven't found a place in Boston proper that does totally vegan pedicures otherwise I'd just get it done.

You can find pale colors that aren't sheer. Maybe a beige-y peachy color?

French pedicures are kind of controversial. I'm firmly on the "nay" side of the fence. I think it's a regional thing too too.

Since youre wearing neutral colours I'd go for a pale grey like this http://www.zoya.com/content/38/item/Zoy ... Carey.html
Or a taupe/pinkish brown like this http://www.zoya.com/content/38/item/Zoy ... 280SP.html

Ok, you guys are intriguing me with the dark blue/navy, I'm sitting between that or a beige-y peachy color (or taupe, eek, will google some swatches, thanks for the shades names). Thanks so much for the advice!

I vote for navy as well! I have some hot pink on my nails right now...it's much flashier than what I usually go for.

Not my photo.

I'm in L.A - yay! I'm going to get my nails done tomorrow and was considering a gel mani - what brands are vegan? I know Nubar has Gelicure but wasn't sure how widely used it is. Will do a search of this thread, but in case anyone knows off hand, it would be great!

Thanks, eatsbabies & bluedawg! <3

Quarantined - I agree that navy sounds nice, or nude

The CND Shellac, which isn't gel I guess, is vegan and is what a lot of places around here use for their "gel" manicures.

Thanks, Pinko! I have no idea what this salon uses, but if I get there and I think it's not cruelty free, I will switch to normal polish

I'm doing Azure now. That's similar to the foil/metallic in that duo.

I want that Dior duo, mainly for the second color, but I might want one of the jelly pencils more, if those are vegan. Sephora doesn't have any of the summer stuff in though, so I've been good so far.

Exhale, though not explicitly vegan and kind of pricey, uses a lot of Spa Ritual products. I haven't been there since going vegan and have never asked though.
